Sick leave is granted as per the MSCF bargaining contract. The agreement has details referring
to absences, illness of family members, bereavements, etc. as part of the terms and conditions of
employment. It is the responsibility of each faculty member to receive approval for planned
absences, either personal leave or sick leave, from their Dean prior to the absence. In the case of
unforeseeable illness or circumstances the faculty member must report his/her absence from duty
by contacting the appropriate Dean or their designee via the online class cancellation system or
via phone or email.
